It could even happen today if everyone tells a friend about it. When I made that goal I honestly thought we'd be hitting it at the midnight hour of the campaign. I can't believe there's 13 days left and we are just $2,400 away from hitting the $60,000 mark. Thank you, each of you, for backing this. I've got a great idea for the new story and you'll love it.
I've started drawing the sketches for the $40 and up backers. Going into this I didn't expect to have this many backers pledging at this level. So the task of sketching something for each of you is daunting, but I'm up for it! And today I did the first 16 of them. These will be placed in the book with something not permanent so you can take it out and put it up somewhere without damaging the book, or leave it in there. Up to you.
I originally wanted to draw in each and every book, but if I'm not getting the books back from the printer until September there's no way I'd get these all out to you by the time I said I would.
Almost done with the $250 rewards. Here's a photo of the Professor from the Secret of the Spacecave story:
Lucy Nova Artwork
Wanted to share with you some Lucy drawings and sketches from the years. Below is a couple of pages from her first story:
One of the things I wanted to with the Lucy comics was to infuse them with all the stuff I like about those DK Eyewitness books, with cross sections, diagrams, and little asides about her world. Like when she gets swallowed by a giant alien:
And here's some sketches of her and the creatures in the story:
After I finished the first story I felt like her design was too realistic and I wanted to stylize her a bit. Below you can see her evolving to a more caricatured look.
And lastly this is the first page of her second story. You can see her form is more simplified now.
Ok, that's it for today. You guys rock! Keep spreading the word and getting eyes on this book.
